Fall Shopping: Skirts

I have the hardest time wearing skirts, especially office appropriate skirts.  I can't seem to find anything that doesn't bunch when I walk, stick to tights, pinch my waist, or simply make me incredibly aggravated.  Needless to say, I'm ready to throw in the towel with my skirt wearing endeavors but I've noticed that this season, there's more variety in the style and shapes of skirts for the hemline I'm seeking (i.e. pencil skirts are no longer the only option).  I'm willing to give it another whirl and am even willing to try a maxi length if that means I'll be comfortable.  Here are my picks for under $100:

Pleated Skirt $44.99 and Ruffle Hem Skirt $46.40





















What's your favorite style of skirt to wear?  If you have any skirt wearing/shopping suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Ooh, I love them all! My favorite style for work is a pencil skirt, but I like fuller skirts, like the red or dark blue ones you showed above, for evenings/weekends.

I find skirts way easier than trousers! I wear A line skirts to work a lot, they look smart but I can move my legs enough to bike in them.

i love wearing skirts in the fall through winter!! cashmere and wool tights go perfectly with them.
I don't own many pants, I mostly wear dresses and skirts.

Skirts are a tough one unless you take some time to find the perfect one, and you're so right about the ones that bunch up etc. yuck! I like a shorter relaxed flouncy A-line sort of like the top left one in your roundups. I found a great army green one at Charlotte Russe for cheap and get compliments on it all the time from my designer friends--they have no idea!!

Great skirts. I wear a skirt almost every day for work. I can't beat a pencil skirt with pumps.
